Montrose students turn trash into artistic treasure By JAYME DETWEILER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A closer look

Students at Montrose Elementary School recycled their bottle caps in an artistic and unique way and finally their work is on display. After months of preparation, the Montrose mural made of colorful bottle caps has been mounted in the school’s library. The mural is a permanent art installation and part of a yearlong arts project called “Roots and Wings.” The project was created during the residency of green artist Michelle Stitzlein. Stitzlein, a central Ohio artist, designed the mural based on sketches created by Montrose students in grades K6.

Through the yearlong project, students are exploring a variety of contexts such as visual arts, music, theater and dance according to Amy Thompson, Bexley Schools’ public information coordinator. The project is funded by a Bexley Education Foundation grant. The students started collecting bottle

interest Mississippi (Kate Mara) singing a song about happiness while different scenes show his circle of friends resolving their conflicts. He hopes the concluding song provokes interesting conversation and gives the movie life beyond the song. When Radnor started writing the script he knew he wanted it to end with the song, “Sing Happy.” He admitted, “I didn't know who would be singing it or why, I just decided that more movies need to end with songs.” When the credits rolled the packed Drexel Theater cheered loudly when Radnor’s name appeared on the screen. After the lights came on he walked down the aisle and received an even warmer welcome of cheers and applause. He then answered the audience’s questions for about 30 minutes before showing his movie. “Happythankyoumoreplease” was his second screenplay, but the first one produced. The film won the audience award for favorite U.S. drama chosen by Sundance fans at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival as well as the Audience Award for Best Dramatic Feature at the Maui Film Festival. Jesse Hara, also a Bexley native, produced the film and is working with Radnor on a new feature film. Production is scheduled to start this summer at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where Radnor is an alumnus.

et price includes musical entertainment and food. A cash bar will also be available. Proceeds from this event provides scholarship funds for high school seniors who reside in Bexley and undergraduate college students nationwide. Last year there were 14 stops on the tour and participants were unable to see all the homes, said Bev Sapienza, co-chair of the event. This year the tour has cut back to 12 homes. “I think it (the tour) is special because Bexley has such a variety in architectural homes,” said Sapienza. She added that the homes aren’t “cookie cutter homes” and some are more traditional while others are more contemporary. A new feature on the tour this year will be the presence of artists and landscape company representatives at some of the homes. They will be available to speak with visitors about the work they did for the homeowners. Local restaurants will offer samples of their food along the tour. One of the 12 homes on the tour is owned by Ben and Jen Thompson. Jen Thompson said she decided to put their property on the tour because they have made several upgrades recently while staying within the original square footage. “We enjoy being on the tour

caps in January. In April, Molly McCarrick’s class sorted a large box filled with caps and, while they were at it, worked on math skills of estimating and addition. Student Matthew Arace knows the colors of the majority of the caps. “Most are brown, definitely,” he said. A first-grader said the 133 pink caps were “from strawberry milk.” McCarrick said that sorting was a good activity for her class, especially at the end of the day. Art specialist Becky Liefeld said excitement had been building for Stitzlein’s residency. Liefeld spearheaded the bottle caps mural project. The mural’s imagery is of flowers and butterflies. Liefeld said.

“These roots and wings are the beginnings of our personal stories and the promise of our future — where our story will take us.” Along with the imagery, being green was a major focus of this project. “Montrose students will experience in a very concrete way that even the littlest things mean a lot when it comes to recycling or finding new uses for things,” Liefeld said. The mural is part of the big question the students have been asking all year: “What’s my story?” Answering this question has taken many different forms. In December, the students attended “The Match Girl” at Otterbein University, produced by Columbus Dance Theatre, and watched

Sapienza said 1,100 tickets were sold for last year’s tour. “We would like to increase that to 1,500,” she said, “But we realize weather plays a big part in that.” She suggested those planning to attend the event buy tickets in advance. Tickets purchased in advance cost $15 and are available at or at Graeter’s Ice Cream, She, and Radio Café in Bexley. Same-day tickets are $20 and can be purchased at Columbus School for Girls.

several classmates in the performance. Also sixth-grade orchestra students wove their own personal stories into a performance at Wexner Heritage Village. The students provided the setting for their stories about traveling with their families. The mural project now displayed in the library extends the “What’s Your Story?” exploration into the realm of science and conservation since the mural was made out of only recycled materials. The project was created not only by the students but also by former Montrose students, staff members, including former principal, Terry Black, and parent volunteers.

the students are asking the purchasers of the barrels to record the amount of water collected each month and estimate the roof surface area for which the barrel is collecting water.

Checks for the purchase of the rain barrels should be payable to the Bexley Education Foundation, 348 S. Cassingham Road, Bexley 43209. There are only 22 barrels and they are selling quickly. For more information, call the BEF at 614-338-2093 or Amy Thompson, Bexley Schools Public Information Coordinator at 614-352-7461 or


Jill Cavanaugh of G&J Pepsi Bottling Company donated the barrels while the Rohyans Sustainability Fund purchased the hardware. The barrels are now available for sale to residents of the community. The collection of rainwater in barrels or other depositories for use during dry months is an ancient practice that has been revived by homeowners looking to save money and protect this natural resource. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, “a rain barrel is a system that collects and stores rainwater from your roof that would otherwise be lost to runoff and diverted to storm drains and streams.” A rain barrel is typically constructed of a large drum, hose and some kind of screen to keep out debris and insects. The barrels constructed by the Bexley student group are for sale for $60. “We hope to use the proceeds to fund other sustainability projects in the near future such as bike racks made of recycled materials, or solar arrays for small lighting projects,” Logsdon said. “I was really proud of the students and advisors for their work and dedication to this project,” Valentine added. As an extension of the project,


Bexley City School District faculty and students have been collaborating with the Bexley Education Foundation (BDF) on a project that has produced rain barrels for sale in the community. Longtime BEF supporters John and JoAnn Rohyans established an endowment fund with the Bexley Education Foundation to support programs across the school district having to do with sustainable living. Last summer, a team of interested teachers met with John Rohyans and superintendent Mike Johnson to share ideas for a possible project. The group read and shared thoughts on the book “Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things” and chose rain barrels as the first district-wide project. The Rohyans Fund provided the seed money for this project. Bexley High School Environmental Club adviser Scott Logsdon and technology teacher David Valentine led a team of students from BHS, while Dr. Dan Jax and Elizabeth Jax brought in middle schoolers and Michael Vincent, Maryland’s leader of Environmental Force! gathered a team from his school. Over the last two months, the groups got together on three evenings in the high school woodshop to build 22 rain barrels.

To the editor: Having lived in Bexley for 10 years or so, my family and I are newcomers by local standards. We have been here long enough, though, to refer to homes by the names of past owners, to have favorite streets and houses and have spent memorable times in the homes of friends and acquaintances. These places are part of our family’s and our community’s heritage. This is not just a goofy, romantic ideal but a tangible asset. What might have passed elsewhere as a tear-down is someone’s restored Mid-Century Modern, Craftsman bungalow or Dutch Colonial. Nearly all 20th Century American house styles are represented in our community. Our homes have beauty, variety and detail. They don’t build them like this anymore. Do our homes define Bexley? I would say, yes they do, as much as our lovely trees and parks define us, as our strong community

values to respect others, the importance we place on education, civic engagement and the richness diversity brings to us. Many of us spend quite a bit of time and often a great deal of money maintaining our homes. Is this necessarily the most practical investment, spending money on a home built in 1918? Not for everyone. New communities offer homes with amenities some may consider essential but which are not common in a Bexley house. Perhaps our community needs to have a conversation about what our old homes mean to Bexley. Do private property rights trump community values? What are our standards relevant to the local architecture? How much value does the character of our homes and businesses add to the value of our properties? Ultimately, do we want protections for an old house, an old theater, an old drugstore? Do we want or need clearer design guidelines? What changes are

acceptable to our community? The Ohio Historical Society and the National Historic Trust have programs for communities like ours to talk about new versus old. Bexley also has residents who are architects, historic preservation professionals, developers and homeowners. Columbus has historic neighborhoods and new ones we can look to for ideas. It is my hope that our community will continue to value and protect our community’s architecture. Think of it as protecting our investments and our heritage. And I ask that people who initiate the process to demolish a home understand that the process allows people to chime in with their concerns. It is not personal, it is preservation. Did anyone important live here? Well to me the answer is clear: Yes, we did.

Cassingham’s Hetzler teaching OSU class This summer Jeannine Hetzler, who was recently appointed principal at Cassingham Elementary in Bexley, has her work cut out for her, as she teaches a class at Ohio State University and writes her dissertation. She has been a classroom teacher at Bexley Middle School and Maryland Elementary before coming to Cassingham, where she is teaching this school year. Hetzler is a co-instructor for the OSU course, Technology and Media in Education, which runs during the OSU’s first summer session, June 21 through July 22 and meets for four hours, twice a week. Her students are working toward their master’s degrees in education. All are secondary educators, with various areas of concentration, including English language, foreign language, social studies, and mathematics. Co-teachers for the course are Dr. Fawn Winterwood and Monica Kowalski, who, like Hetzler, is a Ph.D. candidate at Ohio State. “My Bexley students will benefit from this experience because I’ll be intentionally employing a number of ‘Web 2.0’ features within my classroom next year, probably through Sakai, like class blogs, digital archives, and a classwiki,” she said. “These tools will allow students another means of demonstrating their curricular knowledge, skills and attitudes.” The syllabus for the summer school course further explains its emphasis: “Because of the growing ubiquity of computers and the Inter-

net in education, we will focus on these technologies; however, other media, like video, will also be adJEANNINE dressed. We will approach HETZLER educational media and technology from a number of perspectives including pedagogical, social, technical, cultural, ethical, economic, legal and political. Through this course we will not view technology as merely a neutral educational tool, but as a part of the classroom ecology that brings

with it implications for what we can teach and how we can teach. The format of the course will be a lecture/lab in which you will use the lab to work on course projects.” Hetzler has been working on her Ph.D. in educational policy and leadership since 2005. Her dissertation focuses on teacher perceptions of effective professional development. “I’m hoping to finish by 2012,” she wrote in an email. “Gulp....I’m going to go put my head back into it!” Jeannine Hetzler is the principal of Cassingham Elementary School.

For details, call 235-4136 or visit

Julian Chitu, a Montrose Elementary School third-grader, competed in the National Elementary Chess Championships in Dallas, Texas, May 6-8. Nearly 1,800 students from 40 states participated in the competition, presented by the United States Chess Federation, according to its web site, the “official, not-for-profit U.S. membership organization for chess players and chess supporters of all ages and strengths, from beginners to Grandmasters.” Chitu was the only representative from Ohio and placed 15th in the K-3 Unrated (novice) division. “Julian Chitu plays chess here at the Montrose Chess Club,” said club adviser and fifth-grade teacher Dean Hoover. “He is an amazing player for his age.” Some 25 students participate regularly in Montrose’s Chess Club on Thursday afternoons.

Support system

Blue Star Mothers form bond while children serve overseas By JAYME DETWEILER ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A closer look

For some mothers, the somber meaning behind Memorial Day can be sobering. The thought of a brave son or daughter serving overseas, in hostile territory, can worry a mother sick, with fear that her child is alone and in harm’s way. When those thoughts become overwhelming, help is available from the Columbus chapter of the Blue Star Mothers of America. The Blue Star Mothers group is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical service organization comprising mothers who have or have had children serving in the U.S. military. The organization also promotes public awareness of military support efforts through fundraising and community events. The more than 50 women in the local group provide support to each other and to active-duty military personnel. Associate members could be fathers, aunts, uncles and other family members.

In the past three years, the Columbus chapter of Blue Star Mothers has sent almost 4,000 packages overseas, according to Trina Dunlap, second vice president of the Ohio organization and 2008-10 president of the Columbus chapter.

In the past three years, the Columbus chapter has sent almost 4,000 packages overseas, according to Trina Dunlap, second vice president of the Ohio organization and 2008-10 president of the Columbus chapter. She also cofounded the chapter in 2007. “There are so many over there that do not have anybody sending them anything from home, and they’re over there alone,” she said. “Those are the ones we target.” The intent of the packages is to say,

“Thank you for what you are doing.” Dunlap said she would send 10 packages to her son, Michael Dunlap, a U.S. Army officer with the C-52 infantry company who was stationed in Iraq for 15 months. He arrived home safely in fall 2010. He would give nine away to soldiers whom he knew hadn’t received anything, she said. The Blue Star Mothers will participate in the Memorial Day parade in Worthington on May 30, holding a Blue Star Mothers banner and pictures of their family members who are in the military. “It’s not just another day or a cookout,” Dunlap said of Memorial Day, adding that now that her son has fought overseas, she feels the pain of what the veterans went through in past wars. “It

means a lot to us.” The women of the group also support each other, Dunlap said. “Moms walk in with a tissue and a picture and say, ‘My kid just left for basic,’ and we tell them it’s going to be OK,” she said. Blue Star Mothers post flags in their windows, with one white star representing each solider in their family. Some women of the Columbus chapter have flags with as many as four stars. As president, Dunlap would present a gold star to a family who has lost a loved one. “It was a heart-wrenching thing to do,” she said. The overall mission of this group is to be patriotic, educational, social and service-oriented and to maintain true allegiance to the government of the United States, Dunlap said. Dunlap, a supervisor in American Signature’s home-office loss-prevention department, was honored by the company during its annual leadership

conference awards dinner in August. Dunlap received the 2010 Jerome Schottenstein Humanitarian Award in recognition of her public-service efforts. Established in 1997, the Schottenstein award recognizes an American Signature (Value City Furniture’s parent company) employee who has demonstrated extraordinary volunteer efforts by giving back to the community. Dunlap is only the fifth recipient of the award. Her son presented it to her as a surprise guest. The Blue Star Mothers group meets monthly in Worthington; members find a way to educate the public about what really is involved when Americans are fighting overseas. When asked what the Blue Star Mothers meant to her, Dunlap said she finds it difficult to explain it in words, but offered this: “When you see the flag fly, it’s quite different when you have family in the service.”

Veterans to be honored at fairgrounds powwow By GARY BUDZAK ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A powwow held this weekend at the Franklin County Fairgrounds will honor and celebrate veterans. According to the Native American Indian Center of Central Ohio, which sponsors the powwow, war veterans traditionally open the event by leading dancers into the center of an arena to start each day with prayer and a flag-raising. The powwow will include drum groups, dancing in regalia, contests, arts and crafts, and food such as fry bread. Ross Davidson will be one of the participants in the powwow. Davidson, 73, lives in Plain City and has served in the U.S. Navy and a police chief. He is also a maker of dance regalia, an expert at beading and quilting who has been accepted into the Native American community. “Modern-day powwows as we know them began just before or shortly after World War II in Oklahoma,” Davidson said, “then they spread like wildfire.” Veterans are honored, he said, because Native Americans have a long history of serving in the United States military, and they have a high rate of volunteers. “It’s a family event,” Davidson said of the powwow. “We get to see people we haven’t seen for a while, and meet new ones. That’s what it’s about — a celebration of life.” The 29th annual Selma WEalker Memorail Powwow will be held Saturday-Monday, May 28-30. The gates open at 11 a.m., with dancers entering at 1 and 7 p.m. (1 p.m. Monday). Admission is $7, or $3 senior citizens and students; or $15 for a weekend pass. Children age 5 and under are admitted free. Bringing a chair is recommended. The powwow will end at 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and 5 p.m. Monday. “Having the powwow at the fairgrounds in Hilliard brings a lot of culture and diversity to our community and it also brings in visitors,” said Christy Clark, Destination Hilliard executive director. “Last year, we had 50 hotel rooms

that individuals who participated in the powwow stayed at, so that generated quite a bit of income for us.” Usually, the powwows are held at the fairgrounds on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. However, those aren’t the only events that go on at the Fairgrounds besides the eight-day Franklin County Fair. According to Destination Hilliard, the fairgrounds was host to 134 events last year in addition to the fair, including the powwows,

New exhibit

auctions, gun shows, horse shows, Jaguar shows, model train shows, team penning and 4-H events. “I do not believe people realize how many events are held throughout the year at the Franklin County Fairgrounds,” said Tim Shade, Franklin County Agricultural Society secretary/manager, which owns the fairgrounds, in a statement. “We have events throughout the year during the week and on the weekends that draw people from all over the United States.”

Hartley Roundup

Girls win district; boys end up third By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

There wasn’t much not to like for the Hartley High School boys and girls track and field teams as they got their postseasons started last week in the Division II district meets at Hamilton Township. The girls team qualified three relays and advanced six individuals in a total of nine events to regional on Thursday, May 26, and Saturday, May 28, in Dayton Welcome Stadium. After entering the district meet with a question about how to fully utilize the versatility of senior Aisha Cavin, the Hawks settled on running her in the 100 and 400 meters and in the 800 and 1,600 relays. Although Cavin settled for a runner-up finish in the 100 (11.82 seconds) behind Eastmoor Academy’s Aaliyah Barnes (11.80) after finishing with faster times than the sophomore in both the preliminaries and the semifinal, she won the 400 (57.53) and helped the two relays place first. Coach Richard Jones called Cavin’s failure to win the 100 a “momentary loss.” Last season at state, Cavin won the title in the 400, was fourth in the 200 and ran on the runner-up 800 relay and on the champion 1,600 relay. The top four finishers in each district event advanced to regional, where the top four in each event advance to the state meet June 3-4 at Ohio State. “We’re moving in the right direction,” Jones said. The girls finished first (111) of 22 teams that scored in the Division II district meet. Also winning for the girls were Chelsea Scott in the 100 hurdles (14.31) and 300 hurdles (43.82), the 400 relay of Nala Key, Deja Martin, Destany Martin and Scott (49.84), the 800 relay of Cavin, Najah Greer, Destany Martin and Maya Pedersen (1:41.94) and the 1,600 relay of Cavin, Greer, Mallory McCormick and Pedersen (3:55.25). The boys team finished third (67) of 14 teams that scored in the district 2 meet. Eastmoor (131) won and Granville (106) finished second. Capturing titles were the 800 relay of Anthony Allwein, Noah Key, Matt Simpson and Corey Thompson (1:29.89) and the 1,600 relay of Allwein, Key, Thompson and Isaiah Walls (3:23.12). Walls also added a title in the 300 hurdles (39.73) and a runner-up finish in the 110 hurdles (15.33). “We started off this year with a lot of injuries,” Thompson said. “We’ve had so many underclassmen who have stepped up like Anthony Allwein.”

Girls relay overcomes obstacle By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Despite missing its leadoff runner, the Bexley High School girls track and field team’s 1,600-meter relay advanced to the Division II regional meet for the fourth consecutive season. Senior T.T. Siler replaced senior Abby Fagin on the first leg and helped classmates Elisa Mathews, Kendra Wilson and Charlotte Myers place third (4 minutes, 7.88 seconds) behind Hartley (3:55.25) and Columbus School for Girls (4:04.98) in the Division II district meet May 21 at Hamilton Township. Fagin, the leadoff runner on the 1,600 relay that qualified for state the past three

years, was sidelined with an injury. “Siler did really well for us,” said Myers, whose team finished seventh (38 points) at district behind champion Hartley (111). “It was hard running without Abby, but it’s good to know we have someone who could help us qualify.” The top four finishers in each event at district advanced to the regional on Thursday, May 26, and Saturday, May 28, in Dayton Welcome Stadium. The top four in each regional event will advance to the state meet June 3-4 at Ohio State. Myers played a part in all four of the girls team’s regional-qualifying performances. In addition to running on the 1,600

relay, she placed second in the 400 (57.59) behind Hartley’s Aisha Cavin (57.53) and helped Emily Winnegard, Eva Jerkins and Siler take second in the 400 relay (49.96) behind Hartley (49.84). Myers also helped Regan Detwiler, Lindsey Mathews and Wilson take third in the 3,200 relay (10:17.0) behind Granville (9:43.25) and CSG (9:57.35). The boys team finished ninth (30) behind champion Eastmoor Academy (131) in the district 2 meet. Jalen Robinette, Rasheed Morgan, Harold Jones and Elijah Scott were second in the 800 relay (1:30.14) behind Hartley (1:29.89). Jones, Morgan, Derek Cain and Robinette were third in the 400 relay (43.7) behind Eastmoor (43.3) and

Hartley (43.4). •Since the number of state qualifiers from the Division II district boys tennis tournament was reduced from four to two in 2010, Bexley has not advanced anyone to state. The doubles teams of Christian Liefeld and Matt Wareti and Zach Goodstein and David Seckel both lost in the quarterfinals of the district tournament May 2021 at Columbus Academy. Liefeld and Wareti lost to DeSales’ John Acomb and Paul Rosile 6-4, 7-5 and Goodstein and Seckel lost to Watterson’s Aaron Casares and Jared Clifton 6-3, 76 (7-0). See LIONS, page B2

Grant Dolven and Weston Niermeyer have been playing on the same tennis court for only a month, but the doubles team for St. Charles Preparatory School has qualified for the Division I state tournament Friday and Saturday, May 27-28, at Hilliard Davidson. Dolven, a senior, and Niermeyer, a junior, finished fourth at district, which concluded May 21 at Davidson. They lost the third-place match to Billy Weldon and Stu Little of Upper Arlington 6-1, 6-2. In a semifinal, they lost to the other UA doubles team of Eric Vannatta and Nate Wallace 6-4, 6-3. “It means a lot for Grant and myself because we’ve played varsity since my freshman year. It’s

a nice way to end our career,” Niermeyer said after a 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 win over Canyon Teague and Stephen Cheng of Gahanna in a state-qualifying match. “I don’t think I was focused at the beginning of the season. In a couple of games in the second set, I

started to make some shots and that got me more focused and more positive about how we could change the course of the match. From there we kept playing at a high level.” •The volleyball team will play defending champion Akron Hoban in a Division II state semifinal at 11:45 a.m. Saturday, May 28, at Pickerington North. The semifinal at 10 a.m. has Kettering Alter playing St. Bernard Roger Bacon. The final will be at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, May 29, at North.

CSG Roundup

Defense leads lacrosse team to regional semi By JARROD ULREY

At a glance

ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Columbus School for Girls lacrosse team couldn’t have been happier to have what coach Lindsay Pieper called a “rare opportunity” when it earned a second chance to face Hartley in a Division II South/Central Region semifinal. On March 31, in the Unicorns’ second game of the season, they fell to the Hawks 10-9. Although CSG lost just two other times during the regular season by close margins, it might not have advanced in the tournament to face the Hawks on May 24 if not for the consistent play of its defense. After the Unicorns lost to Columbus Academy 13-11 on May 10, they bounced back to beat Cincinnati Seven Hills 18-11 on May 19 in a second-round tournament game. Goalkeeper Teal Harrison had 11 saves in support of a defense led by seniors Laura Hadley and Elizabeth Simmons. “Teal Harrison has been having a phenomenal year,” Pieper said. “She cleans up a lot for our defense and is definite-

Laura Hadley and Elizabeth Simmons have been doing a good job leading the communication and being role models.” Emma McGregor scored six goals against Seven Hills to help set up the rematch with the Hawks. When CSG played Hartley in the regular season, several key players were on spring break. If CSG beat Hartley, it will play at Academy or Cincinnati Summit Country Day in a regional final on Thursday, May 26. The regional champion ad-

vances to a state semifinal June 3 at Gates Mills Hawken. “(Against Seven Hills) we moved the ball well and were aggressive,” Pieper said. “It just kind of clicked for us. We were moving the ball in transition and were also able to get into some of our plays.” •The track and field team finished third (56.5) of 22 teams that scored in the Division II district meet that concluded May 21 at Hamilton Township. Hartley (111) and Granville (93.5) took

the top two spots. Advancing to the regional Thursday, May 26, and Saturday, May 28, at Welcome Stadium in Dayton were three individuals and three relays. The top four finishers in each event advanced to regional, where the top four in each event advance to the state meet June 3-4 at Ohio State. Capturing a district title for the Unicorns was junior Sophie Chatas, who was seeded first heading into district but had just the 10th-best preliminary time. In the final, she finished in 5 minutes, 14.2 seconds to edge Johnstown’s Meghan Schulze (5:14.99). Placing second at district were the 1,600 relay (4:04.98) and 3,200 relay (9:57.35), while the 800 relay was third (1:47.58). Enri Small ran on all three relays and Emma Harris ran on the 1,600 and 3,200 relays. Harris added a runner-up finish in the 800 (2:22.59). Senior Veronica Vargo, who ran on the 800 relay and is the alternate on the 1,600 relay, believes her team could end up with postseason success similar to her freshman season. In 2008, Vargo ran on the 3,200 relay

we played really well. I am proud of my team.” The Lions had to cope with injuries to two of their top scorers in Colleen Bond and Gabby Goldach. Bond had 42 goals in 12 games and Goldach had 28 goals in nine games. Bexley finished sixth with a 25 record in the Central Independent League behind Academy (70), Hartley (5-2), Wellington (52), CSG (4-2) and Watterson (33) and ahead of Granville (1-6) and DeSales (1-6). Watterson and CSG’s game was canceled. Bexley will lose senior midfielders Liz Harriman (18 goals, 12 assists) and Goldach. Harriman was first-team all-region. The Lions expect to return a strong junior class, including Maddy Kelly at goalkeeper, Emily Elisar, Elisa Pruitt and Ivy Tran as defenders, Bond, Kate Gatterdam and Maggie Janco on the attack and Maddy Hess and Nikki Seletz at midfield. Kelly was second-team all-region and Gatterdam was honorable mention. “Goldach was a tremendous force on offense. She has such a powerful shot and is dynamic in the midfield,” Thomson said. “Liz was so crucial to all aspects of our game. She’s a tremendously strong

defender. She was so important in our transition game in the midfield and crucial on offense.” •Even after Anderson Hastings’ three-run home run gave secondseeded Jonathan Alder a 7-0 lead in the third inning before a rain delay, baseball coach Tom Marker never believed his team was out of the game. The Lions scored four runs in the bottom of the seventh but lost to the Pioneers 10-5 in a Division II district semifinal on May 20. “That’s the type of team that we have. We battle back. In every game this season, they’ve come to play,” said Marker, whose team finished 13-17 overall. “You never, ever see these guys lie down and quit.” It was Bexley’s first appearance in a district semifinal since 1999. The Lions finished fifth at 7-7 in the MSL-Ohio Division behind Newark Catholic (12-2), Heath (10-4), Academy (9-5) and Granville (9-5) and ahead of Lakewood (4-10), Whitehall (3-11) and Licking Valley (2-12). The Lions will lose seniors Spencer Fries (RF), Ben Golden (SS), Jacob Luscher (P), Adam Schwartz (P), Ryan Young (CF) and Tommy Zervas (1B). Schwartz (6-3, 3.23 ERA) and

25-22 in a regional final on May 21 at Gahanna. They beat Watterson for the third time this season in a regional semifinal on May 18 with a 25-16, 22-25, 2518, 25-23 win on the Eagles home court. “It’s hard enough to beat a team three times, let alone when you’re playing them on their home court,” coach Shane Farrell said. “We’re playing our best volleyball at the right time of the year.” •The baseball team finished 13-13 overall, losing to Watkins Memorial 4-0 on May 11 in the second round of the Division I district tournament. The Cardinals beat Westerville North 3-2 in the opening round May 9. “We improved a lot, but it was just one of those seasons,” said coach Ray Benjamin, who completed his 14th season. “We always try to climb the mountain and try to be at the peak during the end of the season. We started climbing early and we fell a

little back at midseason, but we came back and won six of our last eight games.” The Cardinals tied Ready for fourth (2-5) in the CCL behind DeSales (7-1), Watterson (5-3) and Hartley (4-4). The Cardinals were led offensively by senior infielder Michael Mackessey (.342 batting average, 11 stolen bases) and junior outfielder Joey Gilmore (.342, 17 RBI). Junior infielder Calvin Flinders batted .319 and scored 18 runs and junior outfielder Chris Fenlon hit .295. Sophomore catcher Lucas Glover hit .279 and senior infielder Rory Stitlein batted .275. On the mound, St. Charles was led by senior left-hander Patrick Dyer. The Akron signee went 53 with a 2.45 ERA and 68 strikeouts. Senior Jim Romaker was 1-0 with a 1.87 ERA and junior J.D. Vrabel was 3-5 with a 5.86 ERA. Gilmore was 1-1 and sophomore Chris Brake was 1-0. Fenlon was 1-1 with a save. “We had 10 seniors and we

will definitely miss all of them,” Benjamin said. “You can’t replace a kid like Pat Dyer. His three losses were by a combined three runs. “Michael Mackessey was solid all year for us both offensively and defensively and Jim Romaker came in and became a great middle-relief guy for us and kept us in a lot of games.” The remaining seniors included Anthony Buchta (INF), Billy Feehan (INF/C), Andy Hof (P), Thomas King (C/3B), Kevin Manley (3B) and Alex Styborski (OF). •The lacrosse team finished 610 overall, losing to host Thomas Worthington 11-4 on May 19 in a play-in game of the Division I Central Region tournament. It was the second game for Mark Berndt as coach of the Cardinals. He also coached a 10-7 loss to DeSales on May 13 after seventh-year coach Bill Taylor resigned earlier that day. See LACROSSE, page B3

Golden (.477 batting average) were first-team all-league. Golden was first-team all-district and Schwartz was second-team alldistrict. Zervas (.368) was second-team all-league and honorable mention all-district. Fries was honorable mention all-league. Key returnees for the Lions should include sophomores Grant Murphy (C) and Jimmy Kahan (OF) and freshman Alex Eikenberry (OF). Murphy (.384) was secondteam all-league and all-district, while Eikenberry was honorable mention all-league. “The seniors got guys back involved with Bexley baseball again,” Marker said. “That was huge. We dressed a lot of younger guys on varsity to show them how (the seniors) play the game. Next year we can say, ‘You remember how Benny Golden got a ground ball’ or ‘This is the way Tommy Zervas did this.’”

Continued from page B1 However, the Lions did earn a berth in the OTCA state tournament by defeating Watterson 3-2 in a district final on May 23. The Lions will play in the state final four on Sunday, May 29, at Hilliard Davidson. •The boys lacrosse team allowed 14 goals in the first half and spent the rest of the game trying to catch up in a 17-10 loss to New Albany in a play-in game of the Division II Central Region tournament on May 18. “They got on us early,” coach Rich Russo said. “We fell apart defensively (in the first half) and dug ourselves too big of a hole to come out of.” The Lions finished 9-6 overall. It was their most wins and the first winning record in the seven-year history of the program. The Lions will lose seniors Chris Crane and Marcus Gustin from the midfield and Jessie Groner, A.J. Hutchinson and St. John Leck from the defense. “We’re going to have a hard time replacing them, but that’s kind of how it works,” Russo said. “You have to figure out how you replace those guys and move on.” The Lions return a talented group of players including captains Tyler Bringman,A.J. Gogan and Nick Maley. Gogan became the first Bexley player to be named first-team all-region, and Maley and Bringman were named to the second team. “We’ve taken the initial steps of becoming a good program. Like any other team, we have to learn how to win,” Russo said. “We’re not there yet, but I think it is coming.” •After losing to Hartley 16-11 on May 5, girls lacrosse coach Gillian Thomson knew it would take a perfect performance to beat the Hawks in the first round of the Division II South/Central Region tournament. That didn’t happen. The Hawks scored three goals early in the second half to open a 9-4 lead and held on for a 14-10 victory May 19. “It was a really hard-fought game,” said Thomson, whose team finished 8-8-1 overall. “We would have to do everything right up and down the field to beat them, but

that placed fifth in the Division III state meet and watched as the 1,600 relay placed second at state. CSG earned a third-place team finish at state that year with 44 points, behind Bellaire St. John Central (69) and Gates Mills Gilmour Academy (61). “We’re competing really well,” Vargo said. “We won district and (were second at) regional when we were freshmen, and we’re kind of bringing it back this year. It feels good.” Also advancing to regional was Jennifer DeLong, who placed fourth in the discus (111 feet, 8 inches). Anna Vutech placed fifth at district in the high jump (4-10). Rosie Connor was sixth in the 400 (1:03.59), Cecilia Pesavento was sixth in the 100 hurdles (17.05) and DeLong was eighth in the shot put (33-5). The district performance came after the Unicorns placed second (114) in the CCL meet that concluded May 14 on its home track, behind Hartley (141). Ready (94), DeSales (76) and Watterson (65) rounded out the team scoring.

•The girls lacrosse team played Columbus School for Girls on May 24 in a Division II South/Central Region semifinal. The winner advanced to a regional final Thursday, May 26, at Columbus Academy or Cincinnati Summit Country Day. The regional champion advances to a state semifinal June 3. The Hawks opened the postseason with a 14-10 victory over Bexley on May 19 that improved their record to 14-2. Emily Sweeney scored six goals and Emily Strapp added five. Hartley also beat the Lions 16-11 on May 5. Defender Mae Livingston was another standout against Bexley, according to coach Molly Gilbert. “We stuck through to the end,” Gilbert said. “We didn’t let down when we were tired. Mae Livingston had the game of her life. She doesn’t let anybody get by her. We played team ball and stuck through it in the rain.” Hartley defeated Columbus School for Girls 10-9 on March 31, marking what Gilbert believes was the first victory over the Unicorns in program history. If the Hawks again defeated the Unicorns, they could get another shot at an Academy team that they lost to 12-7 on April 5. •The third-seeded baseball team’s season ended with a 51 loss to Big Walnut on May 20 in a Division II district semifinal at Worthington Kilbourne. The Hawks trailed 2-1 when the game was suspended in the fourth inning May 19 at Hamilton Township. After play resumed the next day at the new site, the Golden Eagles scored three runs off senior Caleb Parker. Senior Austin Underwood struck out six on the first day of play but took the loss. Sophomore Luke Heinmiller scored on a single by Underwood in the first inning for Hartley’s only run. “I think we just had too many mistakes in this game,” coach

“It was going to be coach Taylor’s last year anyway,” Berndt said. “I was preparing for this, but it came a little bit sooner than I expected. “It was a little different situation for the whole team, but the team came together pretty well,” Berndt said of his two games as coach. “Everybody stuck together. It wasn’t me doing anything different out there on my own.” Senior defender Greg Gernetzke was first-team all-region. Senior goalkeeper J.D. Orr was second-team region, the team’s Most Valuable Player and its Most Improved Player. Senior midfielder Berk Ellis and senior defender Andrew Wodarcyk were honorable mention all-region. Junior attacker Ryan Finneran was the team’s Offensive MVP, and Gernetzke and Wodarcyk shared Defensive MVP honors. St. Charles has seven seniors in Ellis, Gernetzke, midfielder Joe Hartge, attacker Daniel Johanni, Orr, midfielder Brendan Quinn and Wodarcyk. Ellis and Hartge were captains along with Finneran.

Hartley outfielder Connor Callahan makes a play against Ready on April 15. Callahan was one of eight seniors on the roster for the Hawks, whose season ended May 20 when they lost to Big Walnut 5-1 in a Division II district semifinal.

Below are the regional qualifiers for the Hartley track & field teams with district event, place and time/distance/height: BOYS — Anthony Allwein: 400 (third, 50.22); Noah Key: 400 (second, 49.84); Isaiah Walls: 110 hurdles (second, 15.33), 300 hurdles (first, 39.73); 400 relay: Key, Alonzo Saxton, Matt Simpson and Walls (second, 43.4); 800 relay: Allwein, Key, Simpson and Corey Thompson (first,

Morgan Assmann said. “Big Walnut is a decent team and they hit the ball well. We started the game (May 19) in the rain, and I’ve never done that. The field at Kilbourne was basically under water, which is not conducive to good baseball.” The Hawks finished 14-10 overall. They opened the district tournament May 12 with a 6-1 second-round win over Sparta Highland. Hartley finished third at 4-4 in the CCL behind DeSales (71) and Watterson (5-3) and ahead of Ready (2-6) and St. Charles (2-6). The other seniors were starters Connor Callahan, Jack

return the remainder of its roster. The Hawks, who went 1016 overall a year ago, finished with a 12-10 record that included a 10-game winning streak to start the season. Hartley earned the fifth seed for the Division II district tournament and rallied from a fiverun deficit with two outs in the seventh inning to beat seventhseeded Jonathan Alder 13-12 on May 11 in a second-round game. The Hawks then lost to sixth-seeded Olentangy 8-7 in a district semifinal May 16 at Pickerington North. Among those eligible to return are junior Erin Collins (C), sophomores Tiffany Wolf (P), Anna Kirk (INF) and Allie Smith (CF) and freshmen Sidney Melton (2B), Cassie Plageman (OF) and Nicole Weldon (OF). Hartley tied Ready for second at 3-3 in the CCL behind DeSales (6-0) and ahead of Watterson (1-5). “Our seniors led all of these little kids,” coach Meghan Rowlands said. “We should have a real strong core of players coming back.”

Imwalle, Alex Heinmiller, Kendall Johnson, Alex Lowe and Nick Owens, and backup Nathan Tentler. The Hawks will rebuild next season around Luke Heinmiller, who started at catcher and also pitched. “He’ll be the major guy coming back,” Assmann said. “It’s hard to part with all of the seniors because they knew my moves and I knew their moves. The biggest thing (for the new players next year) will be the speed of the game.” •The softball team will lose a pair of three-year starters in Emma Caputo (1B) and Han- nah Chalfant (OF) but should

Other key players expected to return include juniors Jack Bengal (defender), Michael Clouser (midfielder), Franke Jeney (goalie), Dominic Julian (midfield), Isaac Kebe (attacker), Trevor Lawler (midfielder), Zack Rikk (goalie), Michael Rohde (defender) and Conor Stratman (defender). Sophomores include Tommy Drought (defender), Jack France (midfielder), Michael Fyda (midfielder), Nick Herfel (midfielder), Stuart Hudelson (attacker), Phil Kebe (midfielder), Phil LeFleur (defender), David Shuster (midfielder) and Marcus Ward (attacker). Freshmen players were Ryan Cleary (midfielder), Mike Hamrock (midfielder) and Henry McCann (midfielder). “We have to go back to work,” Berndt said. “We only lose seven seniors out of 65 guys and we’re expecting another big freshman class. The program is going well, but we need to go back to the blackboard of fundamental stickwork and that will make the team better.”

Michael Brewer has two severed heads and a set of daggers on his bed and a moose head on his dining room table. It goes with the territory when you’re working on Evil Dead The Musical. “I’ve been waiting for the scary dreams to start,” Brewer said, only half-joking. Brewer is set designer for CATCO’s production of Evil Dead The Musical, which opens next week. He said that, from a special-effects standpoint, it’s the biggest show he’s ever done, including operas and large-cast musicals. “We’re having (production) conversations about a singing beaver,” Brewer said. The show is a spoof of the popular cult slasher films, CATCO artistic director Steven Anderson, who also directs Evil Dead, told The Beat. As such, Brewer explained, the effects are designed to be “cool and awesome, but not scary. Believable, but not realistic.” “It’s a musical,” Anderson added. “We have eight good voices. The show is good fun, good comedy. Folks are going to walk out of the theatre humming the melodies. The other stuff is just icing on the cake.” Actually, the other stuff is not so much cake decoration but severed body parts (“I’ve spent hours looking for and buying body parts,” Brewer said, ostensibly meaning fake ones) and blood. Lots of blood. The theatre will include a “Safe Zone” and a “Splatter Zone.” The splattering blood has been measured at a maximum of 18 feet. “We’ll be providing protection,” Anderson assured. Josef Matulich was brought in to be the show’s “blood czar.” “There’s no such thing as an expert,” Matulich explained. “It’s

more mad inventor status.” He said he’s worked with a variety of mixtures — that, in addition to the visual effect, the blood formula must also be washable (costumes must last the threeweek run, for example), must be safe enough for actors to be sprayed in the face and needs to not jam the pumps and fixtures used to deliver the blood. For example, there is a scene in which an actor is stabbed with a dagger that is followed by a song delivered while using a hand pump to pump blood from the “wound.” “When an actor has to sing and dance while spurting blood, it complicates things,” Matulich said. Indeed — the functionality of the blood delivery mechanisms impacts more than just the technical aspect of the show. “The challenge in blocking the show was, whereas normally you are concerned with stage fixtures and the relationships of the ac-

tors, you have to get the actors to where things can happen, but get them there in a way that makes sense,” Anderson explained. “I’m comfortable we’ve achieved the goal of making it plausible and natural,” Brewer added. Apart from the times actors are asked to handle certain effects, much of the rest of the bleeding is coordinated from a single workstation under the stage, designed and built by Matulich. “It’s like a command center with gang valves,” he said. “I’ve discovered more types of plumbing fittings than I knew existed.” “You start out with an ideal of what you want and then work with the team to discover what you can do,” Anderson said. “I’ve been amazed at how close to ideal you can get.” For more on CATCO’s production of Evil Dead The Musical, read the BeatBlog at

New lunch menu unveiled at Sage American Bistro Last week, some lucky tablemates and I basically had Sage all to ourselves for a few terrific lunches. See, the top-tier North Campus place was attempting to roll out its new midday service slowly and on the down-low. Yeah, sorry Sage, that’s not likely to happen now that G.A. Loudmouth is on your case. And as word breaks out that Sage is making great soups, salads and lusty, handcrafted sandwiches for only a couple more bucks than fast food, I doubt I’ll be enjoying many more allalone nooners in there again any time soon. Working from a restrained menu that emphasizes tricked-out familiar sandwiches, Sage’s lunchtime fare is rife with bold, compound bites that wrangle the sweet and spicy, the salty and hearty, the leafy and meaty. And that includes soups and salads because Sage certainly excels in these culinary phases, too. Take, for instance, a recent Daily Soup ($6) flaunting deeply developed flavors. At its heart were tons of long-cooked,

The soup’s body, which was creamy — but not excessively thick or gloppy — benefited handsomely from blue cheese pungency and a backbone of bacon. Instead of forgettable ephemera, the salads I tried at Sage actually provided me with something memorable to sink my teeth into. For example, “steaky” is not a word generally associated with a pile of greens, but it aptly describes the Grilled Caesar ($7). About half an intact head of smoky and grill-marked romaine was trimmed to its heart and embellished with hard-cooked egg, anchovies and a brashly rich dressing. The excellent Spring House Salad ($7) elegantly balanced delicate, chopped thin asparagus spears, shallots and a

Speaking of sides, Sage’s other extras, like the addictive, hand-cut fries ($3), the bright, sweet and tart red cabbage slaw ($2) and a not-so-simple Simple Salad ($3), were standouts in taste, size and price. If sandwiches aren’t your thing, there are also a Smoked Salmon pasta ($11) and a full-flavored, salt-edged meatball with a kicky “smoked tomato” gravy, killer tater-tot-riffing risotto cake and niftily contrasting arugula salad ($11). These entrees might even call for a nice libation from Sage’s fine drinks menu. I know my toast to Sage’s welcome and new — if no longer secret — lunch menu certainly did.

Barbecue veteran moves center of operations to new restaurant At 34, Stan Riley already is a 17-year veteran of the barbecue industry. As a junior in high school, Riley began washing dishes for Art Yoho, the man who would become his mentor — and later partner — in the restaurant business. Yoho, then owner of Yoho’s Café and Catering on Westerville Road in the North Linden area, showed Riley the ropes: how to cook, work the smoker, control food costs and manage labor. “Everything he taught me, I took with me,” said Riley, who opened his second Holy Smoke Barbecue last week at 5251 N. Hamilton Road near

New Albany. “We’re in a good place to grow,” he said. “I needed a commissary and catering facility that also had a retail setting.” The store, in 2,100 square feet of space that was formerly home to Baja Sol, is more than just a sit-down restaurant: It is now is the barbecue center of his universe. It is where he prepares all the meats for his two eateries (the original is in the North Market) in Southern Pride Smokers located out back. The space, which seats 50 inside and another 30 outside, is designed in a way that allows customers to take a visual survey of the offerings: a glass case out front houses the brisket, pork, ribs, sausage and chicken, plus a variety of Southern sides. “Hopefully, you see what you want to eat today and see what you want to eat tomorrow,” he said. When orders are prepared, patrons By Lorrie Cecil/ThisWeek retrieve their meals Stan Riley stands in his second Holy Smoke Barbecue restaurant, which refrom the counter. cently opened at 5251 N.

shagbark hickory and cherry, which are cut from the log right before they enter the smoker. Beer will join the beverage list in the next week or so. Riley said he will have the typical American macro-brews in the bottle while offering a toire of micro-brews on tap. For the time being, there’s Frostop Root Beer on tap, along with other Recipe of the week cold beverages. Holy Smoke has its own brand of barbecue sauces — “Sweet and Smokey” and “Spicy Chipotle” — available tableside and for retail sale. And, Riley stresses, the ribs are slathered with sauce before serving, unless otherwise specified. He also offers several sauces for retail made by CaJohns Fiery Foods, a specialty-foods manufacturer located in Westerville. Incidentally, Riley and John Hard, the founder of CaJohns, were partners in the North Market before Hard left to concentrate on his salsas, sauces and spice mixes. He also makes Holy Smoke’s private label. The new store means the end of an era at the Westerville Road site, from which Riley was doing all of his cooking for the market and catering operations.

Financial finesse

Be prepared by getting pre-approved Despite countless stories about the troubles in the housing market, there are many options available. That said, the first step in determining whether or not to shop for that new home is to discuss your financial situation with a trusted mortgage professional and get pre-approved. A pre-approval is one of two common processes prospective homebuyers engage in before making an offer on a home; prequalification is the other. Both allow customers to begin the buying process with a good idea of what they can afford, but there are clear advantages to going one step beyond pre-qualification to get pre-approved. Pre-qualification uses a homebuyer’s financial information — income, debts and other monthly obligations, such as child support payments — to determine a buyer’s debt ratio. Depending

on how much or how little is available for a down payment, this process helps to determine the size mortBRIAN gage the BURSTEIN buyer can afford and the type of mortgage that best meets the buyer’s needs. Pre-approval takes the approval process to the end — almost. Only a few items remain outstanding, such as an appraisal of the property and confirmation the buyer will have whatever cash is needed for the closing. For a comparatively small fee — usually about $50 — lenders will work through the steps necessary to receive a mortgage. Buyers who get pre-approved

know exactly which financial guidelines they are working within. The pre-approved buyer has the lender’s approval for a specific mortgage amount. Lenders and real estate agents sometimes say pre-approval is the “same as cash,” which can often be an advantage in beating out other buyers. Searching for the right home, arranging a comfortable mortgage and closing the deal can be a challenging process. So doing a little legwork up front by becoming pre-approved can make the other challenges a whole lot easier. Brian Burstein is an area sales manager with Fifth Third Bank Mortgage.

“STUDENT SPOTLIGHT” Marburn Academy is proud to acknowledge the contributions of Robert S. Garek Merit Scholarship recipient Aaron Svoboda to the Marburn Academy community. Junior Aaron Svoboda enjoys coming to Marburn Academy every day. “Every year at Marburn is a good year. I receive individual attention from my High School teachers and they understand the way I learn best. I can’t wait to be a senior, and work on my Capstone documentary project next year,” said Svoboda. Research in bio-remediation, culminating in an individual project on utilizing a bio-filter to help sustain life is a major focus for Svoboda at Marburn. The High School science faculty supports him in this endeavor. Svoboda also uses his expertise in climbing and rappelling to volunteer with the Marburn Lower Division and Middle Division Voyageurs program. He has assisted several different classes with their climbing and rappelling skills. Climbing is an important skill taught at Marburn. As a result of his experience with climbing from Marburn Academy, Svoboda has almost completed his certification in climbing from Summit Vision Center, located in Westerville, Ohio. Svoboda also participates in Cross Country and volunteers with his church. Everyone at Marburn Academy is proud of an outstanding leader like Aaron Svoboda.
